Women’s Cancers



Women’s Cancers

According to the National Cancer Institute, the top five most common cancers in women are breast cancer, cervical cancer, endometrial cancer, ovarian cancer, and uterine cancer. Cancer is among the top fatal diseases in Thailand. Cancer diagnosis and treatment at an early stage significantly increases the chance of a cure and survival. Every woman should have yearly health checkups and cancer screenings. It is also advisable to maintain a proper, healthy lifestyle to reduce the risks. Regular cancer screenings, even without symptoms, are able to detect cancer in its early stage, so it can be treated immediately with effective outcomes.

Breast Cancer

Women aged 40 years up should undergo a breast cancer screening with digital mammography and ultrasound every 1-2 years.

Cervical Cancer

Cervical cancer can be prevented by screening using the HPV/Pap co-test (HPV test + Pap test), to check for both high-risk HPV and cervical cell changes. HPV vaccination is recommended for people ages 9 through 26.

Endometrial Cancer

Currently, there is no way to screen for endometrial cancer. But those with irregular periods or abnormal menstruation should see a gynecologist a soon as possible to receive a diagnosis and identify the cause of the problem.

Ovarian Cancer

There is currently no way to screen for ovarian cancer but it can be prevented by having annual health screenings.

Uterine Cancer

Women aged 45 years up should undergo regular pelvic examinations, including childless women who are at high-risk of uterine cancer.
